    Abstract

    Microbiology is a pioneering discipline. Many of the fundamental processes of biology were first elucidated in microbial systems - deciphering the genetic code, the one gene-one enzyme hypothesis, the mRNA hypothesis, the first genome sequences, and many more key biological breakthroughs were all the result of microbiologists! In an age where interdisciplinary projects are encouraged it is easy to be cynical. However, true collaborations between biologists and physicists can lead to fascinating insight into biological systems, especially when exciting new techniques can be applied to biology.
